Following the release of his lead single ‘Flip Mode’ earlier in May, CASA X hits back with a hauntingly poetic and lyrically enthralling hip-hop track titled ‘Lighting Fires’, featuring vocals by RENNY SYMF.
Told through an introspective lens, ‘Lighting Fires’ is about the lows of a struggling artist. The track touches on themes such as fame and fortune, along with broken relationships and rehab.
Of the single CASA X says, “I want to give people an insight of what a struggling artist lives through. The highs and lows, the torment of success, and to consider what the price of fame is really worth”.
After hearing the early production from Marvelouz Music, CASA X’s intention was to depict a sense of anxiety that was running from his past, which was later developed into the music video.
In an incredibly cinematic representation of what ‘Lighting Fires’ is about, the accompanying music video is a story driven portrayal with primary meanings of transformation and change. CASA X says, “we used multiple symbolic transitions such as water to fire, industrial to nature, and disoriented to a clear state, in order to show the rebirth of an artist.”
Hailing from Sydney, the versatile hip hop artist is steadily gaining a reputation for his lyrical excellence and humble storytelling. Within the upcoming album ‘100FACES’, ‘Lighting Fires’ unfolds as the emotional rollercoaster that CASA X displays along its journey, which is slated for release later this year.
